Could just go the "easy" route and bypass the switch all together and use a rocker/toggle switch?

whenever i question a wiring install , i always re look at what i did. start with a ground , make sure it is grounded to a piece of metal , if its a painted surface strip the paint around where your grounding , then make sure there is power making it to the lights
easy way to test that is to turn the lights off test , then turn them on and test, if there is power then ground is ok , if not then ground is not ok , or there is a mess up with say a inline fuse , or wire. if there are any other wires check them to make they are doing whatever they need to do .

if after you have checked it all, then there has to be a fault somewhere. maybe defective part , or bad bulbs or something

Im grounded to the battery, and I checked everything a bunch. I may just say screw it to the switch and use the rocker I have. And power is also straight from the battery along with the fuses are all good. Ill mess with it more n see what I can do

Nope, they should be independent of each other. Try to show some pics.

Okay both bulbs are good. Everything is spliced where it should be. The only thing I can think is where outside meets inside and the connection may be bad.

I hate that haha. The first after market stereo I installed boggled my mind for a few days. I had everything done right. I re-did everything twice, I even bought another wiring harness. But I couldn't figure it out. Turned out I blew a fuse, and that's all it took.

Your lights look good though! Post some night pics when you get a chance.
